My name is Ro and I am one of the founders of Guava to the People located on Occupied Duwamish Land (aka Seattle, WA) .
Thank you for taking the time to visit our GoFundMe. Please share and donate what you can to help us reach our goal ASAP.
Help GUAVA TO THE PEOPLE raise funds to take things to the next level!
Guava to the People is working towards saving up some funds to obtain a few things they really need in order to do more of the good work full-time!
ABOUT GUAVA TO THE PEOPLE
Guava to the People exists to embrace, nurture and strengthen QT+BIPOC community. We aim to do this through food, fundraising, mutual aid and sharing resources.
GTTP began in June of 2020 led by two QTPOC as an effort to feed protesters on Capitol Hill. The goal was to bring something authentic and comforting to those on the front lines of the police brutality protests. Food is the way in which we nurture, embrace and encourage our community to stick together.
Over the course for the past several months GTTP has grown into a not for profit business model that strives to uplift QT+BIPOC as well as the ongoing fight against food insecurity growing drastically in our city.
This fund is intended specifically to obtain the following needs:
- Reliable Vehicle
- Storage Unit
- Catering Equipment
- Upgrading kitchen access from 3 to 7 days a week
The four things above will allow GTTP to begin:
- Full-time schedule
- Launch a volunteer program
- Begin offering delivery options and regular transportation to events
- Cater hot food to larger crowds of people (200+)
- Increase the ability to donate more food to activist groups and community mutual aid efforts on a weekly basis.
GTTP greatly appreciates all the support and love the community has shown us thus far. If we are able to reach this funds goal we are so so excited to bring more goodness and cuban eats to the streets and keep feeding this movement! Muchas Gracias!
